It came up recently on either this list or Mailman-Developers but I
can't find it either.

Yes. The password reminder is one message to a user with passwords for
all the users subscriptions at the site.

If you want bounces to go to individual listowners, you'd have to send
one message per subscription instead of one message per user. I
suppose you could hack the code to do this if it was important enough
to you.
